The Università Iuav di Venezia and the London College of Fashion (University of the Arts London) have organised an international symposium in collaboration with the Centre for Fashion Studies (Stockholm University), in conjunction with the opening of the exhibition Diana Vreeland After Diana Vreeland curated by Judith Clark and Maria Luisa Frisa at Palazzo Fortuny (March 10-June 25, 2012).

The symposium aims to discuss the evolving discipline of fashion curating, and brings together prominent voices from the field. The conference will use Diana Vreeland’s exhibitions and experience as Special Consultant to The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (1972-1989) as a starting point for articulate reflections on the relationships between fashion, exhibitions and museums. Curated panel sessions will focus on Diana Vreeland’s legacy and the principal themes brought forth by her work at the Costume Institute including: the display of fashion in museums; the definition of fashion exhibition and the relation between fashion curating and exhibition making; the relationship between the roles of fashion curator and fashion editor; the role of fashion curating in academia.
